Battle Arena E3 Throwdown 2013: The First Round

The cream of the videogame crop has been hand-picked to battle for your entertainment in our all-out, no holds barred, slug-fest of the best trailers and videos from this year’s E3! 32 characters from the hottest, freshest franchises will be judged by you, the fans, and there can only be one winner. Who gets an extra life and who gets unplugged is up to you!

It’s that time of year again–E3 is just around the corner and all of the publishers and developers will be showing off the big new games for 2013, 2014, and beyond. And we want to know which characters from the new and returning franchises have you most excited heading into the new console generation.

The MTV Multiplayer team has scoured the games that are coming soon to PCs, consoles, and handhelds, picking out the illest, most dangerous, or strangest characters that we think you might want to see more of. Now all you have to do is vote for your favorites.

Take a look at the brackets: we’ve got all manner of assassins, both of the high seas and high style variety (Edward Kenway, “Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag,” Mondo Zappa, “Killer is Dead“), a monster hunter on what could be his final journey (Geralt, “The Witcher 3“), a pair of wasteland explorers trying to survive a deadly fungus (Joel and Ellie, “The Last of Us,”), and a DC villain with plans to end the Batman once and for all (Black Mask, “Batman: Arkham Origins“).

Voting for the first round starts… now. Hit the image at the top of this post (or click right HERE) and decide who’s heading to round two.
